For Honor claims second UK No.1

Ubisoft’s For Honor is the UK No.1 for the second week in a row, despite a hefty drop in sales. Physical unit sales for the game were down 72 per cent week-on-week, although this was still enough to force Microsoft And THQ Nordic’s Halo Wars 2 to settle for second place on its debut. That matches the No.2 achieved by the first Halo Wars title, which back then was beaten to first place by PS3 shooter Killzone.

Grand Theft Auto V and FIFA 17 remain in third and fourth spots respectively, while Sniper Elite 4 falls just three places to fifth. Resident Evil VII also drops to its lowest place yet, although it remains in the Top Ten in ninth.

Next week’s chart will see Sony’s PS4 exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn square off against Nintendo Switch and its big debut title The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Here’s the UK All Formats Top 40 for the week ending February 25th:

  1. For Honor (Ubisoft)
  2. Halo Wars 2 (Microsoft/THQ Nordic)
  3. Grand Theft Auto V (Rockstar)
  4. FIFA 17 (EA)
  5. Sniper Elite 4 (Sold Out)
  6. Battlefield 1 (EA)
  7. Rocket League (505 Games)
  8. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (Activision)
  9. Resident Evil VII (Capcom)
  10. Forza Horizon 3 (Microsoft)
